As I thought and prayed about my sample this week, I decided my act of worship would be sending special wishes to a converted Muslim gentleman, praising God for His mercy and grace extended to all who accept His free gift.
Yasir lives in a sensitive country and has no family or friends who remember his birthday. There cannot be any religious overtones to the card. That being said, I continue to ask the Lord to extend encouragement (Hebrews 12) & His love to a brother whom I've never met through my card. I guess I want God to help him 'read between the lines' so that he in turn worships the Lord.
Since our verse tells us to give thanks to God, I'd thought I'd share the part my Thankful List that pertains to stamping: letting me feel like an artist when I stamp, color/color/color (I love 'em all!!), supplies in abundance, opportunities to minister to others, and sharing giggles & heartaches with fellow-stampers. There's quite a bit more on my list, but you get the picture.
Click HERE to head on over to SSCC. I'm looking forward to not only viewing your projects, but hearing about your experience as you worship the Lord through stamping. Blessings, Laurie
(BTW - My font size is going crazy, so it'll be a big surprise when this post actually publishes on Sunday. : P)
My card is made with SU!'s Wild Wasabi. I think I have Spring Fever and just need some green! I used a CB folder for my textured background. Although it doesn't show up in the picture, I've also used Stickles and Glitter Mist to add shimmer. I wanted to make a fun card, but kept it as flat as I could since it will be mailed overseas. I hope those tiny square brads will go through successfully.

Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge 28
Good Morning, Friends. I trust you are doing well and enjoying this last weekend in February.
I'm so excited about Pamela's challenge to us this week. Whatever your project, she wants you to actively worship the Lord while you make it. Here's our verse from Colossians 3:17: "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
